Share ahead with the kids your budget. Dolls are $35 , lite wands $30 , snow balls in a plastic cup with lid and logo $12. and it is set up to make you feel bad if your don't purchase and the kid to feel left out if you don't buy. Have a discussion ahead and help kids see the set up or save their allowance for the goodies.

It was fun. I liked the staging which is always impressive but if you have done the frozen experance in California adventure you get the same experance. Of course my daughter loved it. My advice for what it is worth, BART is not worth the walk, especially after the show when your kids are tired and on a sugar rush, just pay for parking. Eat before but get there early to avoid the crowds going through the metal detectors. Don't bring anything metal. Bring your own dollar store candy, yes they go through your stuff but they are looking for candy. While at the dollar store buy some wands or whatever you your kid wants because otherwise you are paying $28 for a light up wand you could have gotten for $1. Also don't bring a stroller, they sent allowed inside and it holds up the line getting in. Oh and the lighting prevents decent pictures of characters so do a shoot with the kids at the tide photo booth before the show and if you are going to spend more money the program is the best way to get pictures you can see $20. Hope that helps. Have fun!

Yanni had that arena rockin' with his magical music/musicians. The
whole crowd was so into it - he had to come back for three encores.
Never disappointed when we get to see him. Can't wait until he's back in the Bay Area again. The seats were...continued

The seats were OK, nothing special but the performance from Yanni and his orchestra members was outstanding. Truly, these are world class musicians.

Yanni was simply awesome! We gave him a standing ovation, right into a third encore. My 11 year old granddaughter also enjoyed the show. We plan to see him again next year.
